New Haven Youth Soccer is hosting a Grassroots (Entry Level) referee field session facilitated by the Connecticut State Referee Program this year. The Grassroots program will be primarily online and is intended on training individuals wishing to Referee youth soccer games for New Haven and is required training for those wishing to do so.

Detailed instructions, requirements and information can be found at the following link: https://www.ctreferee.net/files/referee_instructions/new_referee_grassroots_instructions_31Jul18.pdf.

It may be easiest to open the instructions on one device and complete registration on another device. You will create a profile, register and pay for the Grassroots Program, ($93.95), complete the online training and testing and then the link to register for the in-person session will be activated.

Once you successfully complete the online modules (at your own leisure / via open book) and attend the class you will be ready to officiate games all throughout Connecticut!

We assign games on a weekly basis therefore if you wish to referee one week and take a week off that is fine-you may even wish to referee in the morning and have the afternoon off-we will work with you!

If you have questions navigating through the website www.ctreferee.net please call 860-919-0850.
